I posted a while back after I got back from vacation that I got John's autograph on a baseball at spring training. He's the Brewers Ace closer and a hell of a pitcher. I got to see him pitch in both games I went to this spring. He's a really nice guy, taking time after the game to sign autographs till pretty much everyone was happy. I had read somewhere that John really likes the fan mail and is a great TTMer. So since I didn't have him sign a card at Spring Training I figured I'd send him a couple and hopefully add him to my Brewers TTM project.
Well I got back from a camping trip this weekend to find one of my TTM return envelopes in the mailbox.
First we have a 2011 Allen and Ginter. I think you'll agree the 2011 doesn't look half bad autographed.
And I also sent him a 2010 Topps card that I wanted to add to the project. I now have 2010 filled in and Mr. Axford gets the spot.
Thanks John and good luck this year.
